    We need this loop hole pluged: Radioactive water identified in Wise County towns Texas,CHICO, Texas — Another North Texas town, another public water well contaminated with radioactivity.

    The addition of Chico, in northwestern Wise County, makes four towns or communities that have been forced to shut down a water supply recently due to unsafe levels of radioactive particles.

    It began with News 8’s discovery of three public water wells in Parker County that have — in the past few months or days — been identified as contaminated.

    The problem involves unacceptable levels of cancer-causing radionuclides in Hudson Oaks and in two water supplies in nearby Aledo.

    -continued: Since then, News 8 has also learned of contaminated water wells at the Crazy Horse Ranch housing development, Saddle Club Estates, and Silver Creek Elementary School in Azle.

    It is IMPERATIVE we enact this bill. The lunacy of Cheney’s 2005 Energy Bill opening the loophole for this obscene form of water pollution puts every citizen at risk. Only ONE PERCENT of the world’s fresh water is accessible to humans for consumption, and our government has seen fit to let these monsters forever poison our precious aquifers without a the slightest oversight or recourse. Please act now and don’t give up the fight!
